The art of selling
Our commitment to expanding the range of professions in which we offer you occupational training gains momentum here. Unlike common conceptions that employment options for people with psychiatric disability are limited to industry only (such as production line operators), our occupational initiatives are in a wide variety of professions. Some individuals are indeed best suited to the world of industry, whereas for others, arts and crafts leave them feeling fulfilled, and others whose talents steer them in the direction of sales. Here are some details about the training program on the art of selling.

Training will be conducted via a course that will take place at a recognized and reputable institution in the industry. Every graduating class of the course will have 15 participants.
